A thread-wasted wasp opens the burrow to the cell where it will place the paralyzed caterpillar on which it will deposit an egg. The caterpillar will provide a living food source for the developing larva. The binomial name for this wasp, Ammophila nigrans, translates as sand-loving.
Recently hatched insects (Hemipterans) reamain in a mass near the egg cluster on the underside of a pepper plant leaf.
